Parisian Breeze Card Purse

I found this template on SCS and had to make it.
You will find it quite easy. You do need to purchase some 4 x6 clear boxes
as the center of the purse holds one box cut in half for the cards and envelopes. I have used the new SU! Parisian Breeze paper from SU! which is just beautiful. I designed the cards on more of a simple note so that you
can easily incorporate this project for your stamp camps. The stamp set used is the new 24/7 for the cards. x0xo

Flowers in a box

Ready for Spring? Well we still have snow! Here is a cute box of flower
seeds I picked up at the Dollar Tree. It's a pretty good size, 4 x6. I thought it was so cute that I had to do something with it. So, I took the candy slide
idea where you use valentine hearts and made it into this.
Start by "wrapping" your box like a present leaving the top open. Punch the top about a 1/2 inch down with the slit punch on both sides, slide your ribbon thru and push the box of flowers down into the sleeve, tie the ribbon into a bow and then close the bottom off as shown with double back tape. Then decorate it!

Gift Bag for a Friend...

This simple little bag is made with a brown lunch sack. Cut your lunch sack down to 5 1/2 inches tall x 5 1/4 wide. Cut your cardstock to fit, then
the overlay blue piece attaches to the back and folds over the top. The size on that is 7 1/4 x 5/ 1/4. Scored and folded over the top at the 2 3/4 mark.
Then add the greeting and embellishments. Have Fun! xoxo

Top Note Purse full of cards

This is the cutest and easiest little purse. As long as you have the SU! Top Note Die and the large Scallop die you will be able to make them! I found it at stamping guru Becky Roberts blog. Thanks Becky! and then decided to add the 3x3 cards to it. I posted the instructions for you to follow below. When making the scallop portion
I cut the inner circle from my coluzzle on the 6 line from the center. Also
you will score the middle section of the scallop 1" in order for it to fit the top of the purse. So cute! xoxo

Easter suprise....

Here is an awesome little project that you can make for any occassion.
I happen to chose Easter. I got the measurements from incrediably talented Nicole Heady's site. Thank you Nicole!
You do have to modify the size of the outside box depending on which brand
of cake you choose to buy, they do run different so note that. Otherwise here
are the measurements I used for pillsbury funfetti cakebox. You will need
2 pieces of cardstock cut 5 5/8 x 11 for outside box. Score both pieces at both ends 1 1/2. Then assemble around box with double back adhesive.
For the front flap with the crystal candies you will need to cut 1 sheet of the
same color cardstock of your box at 5 5/8 x 11 again, yet this time scoring at 1 inch at the bottom then at 7 3/4 and then at 8 3/4.
When done fold the pieces and adhere with the double back adhesive to the first box. Then for the inside holder for the crystals you will need a strip of cardstock 10 1/2 x 1/2 inch. Score each end at 3/4 and then score the rest of the strip every 1 1/2 so you get the peaks and mountains effect.
Moving on to the front pocket cut a piece of cardstock 7 x 6 in, laying the cardstock the 7 in long direction score 1/2 inch on three sides leaving the top untouched so that you can cut the scallop pocket. After you score the 1/2 inch then score all three sides at the 12 inch mark. I know this sounds confusing but you are making a pocket so keep that in mind. When all three sides are scored add adhesive and attach to the front of the box flap. You will then need to make the folded over flap to hold the box together. It should be cute at 1 1/2 x 4 then score it at 1 1/2 x 1 1/4 decorate it and attach it. Oh make sure you put your ribbon on very first before your pocket goes on! you will need to pieces of ribbon cut at 18 inches attach with double sided adhesive. Then decorate it, I used a vellum envelope for the pocket and filled it with those little hard sugar images you put on a cake. Hope I got all the directions right! Let me know if you need help! Have fun! I would love to see what you all come up with so email me yours! xoxo
